Very interesting course material, learning about many things I daily experience but never really delve into. Screening were always interesting and I liked the way he structured them. Engagement activity work style lead to low-medium weekly load.

Low-key the best and most fun class I've taken at Midd. If you have any interest whatsoever in video essays, TAKE THIS CLASS. You get to pick any movie/tv show/form of digital media at the beginning of the semester, and then just make video essays about it each week, practicing a new skill on Adobe. Homework (making video essays about the things I'm most passionate about) for this class was the HIGHLIGHT of my week. Jason is so flexible and does not care about grading, only about you getting better. Couldn't recommend this class more!

Professor Mittell is an amazing teacher. It is very clear that he is super knowledgeable and passionate about television. Even though the class has a lot of reading, the lectures are much more like discussions than actual lectures. Professor Mittell's grading system is a bit complicated, but it allows students to pick and choose which assignments they want to do. Every assignment is graded pass/fail, so as long as you put some effort into the assignments, you will do fine. All of the materials for the screenings are also provided online so if you miss a screening it is not the end of the world. I would Highly recommend this class to anyone who loves television and wants to engage more with the medium.
